Pharmacy techs can now be certified in MTM

The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) announced the launch of a new certificate in MTM for pharmacy technicians.

“The MTM certificate formally recognizes trusted pharmacy technicians for their advanced understanding of medication uses and MTM administration,” said Angela Faszczewski, CPhT-Adv, vice president of the PTCB Certification Council, and Chair of the PTCE Exam Development Committee, in a news release. “With this designation, technicians engaged in high levels of patient care have another opportunity to move one step closer to earning the Advanced Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT-Adv) credential, the ultimate differentiator for those with expertise and experience. Pharmacists and employers can be assured that technicians earning specialty certificates and the CPhT-Adv credential are among the most dedicated, competent and valuable members of the pharmacy team and can be relied upon to provide exceptional patient care.”

PTCB said that its Medication Therapy Management Certificate will empower pharmacy technicians to demonstrate their deep knowledge of medication uses, prescription accuracy, and administration of MTM.
